Austrains FO in 20+ Pieces

I bought a 2 pack of Austrains CCA FO in Tuscan and Russet passenger car pack . I want to change the roof colour , paint the end platform underneath the roof white, decal the body then heavily weather it. I don't like masking so I thought it easier to pull apart and paint each individual piece. The interior colour can be changed passengers added and open windows . The under carriage can also be weathered . Here is an exploded view before I start the painting (its raining outside) not good for airbrushing.

Re Join the RTM

Ive always wanted to rejoin the RTM and last December I finally did . The membership person asked if I wanted my old number back if it was still available "but in the interim " ive given you 60__ . I responded I'll have that one thanks very much .  Ive seen some pictures on Facebook and on Flickr which has brought back some nice memories of the end of steam as I saw it ,the RTM opening Enfield and the great tours . One of these days I will open a picture up on one of these sites and I will be there in someones pic.(I hope anyway). I spent most of my paper run money on Tours, donations and fares getting to Enfield and later Rhondda. Other than my wish that their was more preserved steam (running now) I wish I had a better camera back then. Bring on the mighty Garratt 6029 .
